vB Version: 4.0.6 Rating: (8 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 90
Released: 21 Aug 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Not Supported Template Edits  

Introduction:
I am StarBuG, a clinical Physician for Children, and I am running several health Forums to support patients with medical questions. During the many years I am running my Forums I constantly worked on optimizing my Advertising integrations to maximize my earnings and the user experience using my forums. The click through rates for my Adsense integrations are good to very good for forums and may increase due to further optimizations so mark this mod as installed if you use it to make sure you always use the best optimized version of my adsense integration.

What this mod does:
This mod adds a Google Adsense large rectangle after the first post of each thread.
It is blended to look like a regular post in your thread without violating Google adsense TOS. Make sure you use the same colors you use on your forum to optimize blending!
This mod shows the AD only to GUESTS!
If you want to show it to your members as well remove the " AND $show['guest']" condition!.

Installation instructions:

in the template postbit_legacy find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and add below:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Additional Comments:
Make sure you change all lines marked RED to fit your forum.
For better blending I use my Websites Logo as "Avatar" to make it look more like a post. For the same reason I added the "we have no influence..." part below the "Avatar". You can remove the whole "userinfo_extra" part if you don't like the text.

Great hack.. I may look into this one very soon. But im really interested in the Adsense module under your breadcrumbs? Is there a link available for download?

Installing this now.. Question does the ad have to be the 336x280px large rectangle?

Do you mean the big welcome message with the large rectangle on the left?

You can use whatever ad format you want however a large rectangle ad performs best in my experience
